    Unusual to see Liam Neeson in a comedy, does RT rate on casting, and could any of them be convinced to revise their score after a second viewing?
    Only Lovers Left Alive didn’t work over here. The dull dialogue, empty characters and tawdry backdrops was all B-grade, the movie purported to be more than it was. It was one of those movies from which…[Read more]

    20 inches, and half expecting it to be 20 feet, thus lasagna for an entire army!
    Quite a few mods for Doom 2 at Nexus, earliest 2015, quite a few f9om this year interestingly.

    Just a small nondescript urn with a couple of small holes in it. Really have to upgrade, this caught the eye:
    Frog with incense stick
    Yes it is, wasn’t aware he provided his own illustrations, aspects of which are recognizable in the movies.
    In the local cafe, there was a copy of Nature, May 2024. Lots of detail in the research, commensurate with Scientific American in…[Read more]

    Never screened any Sidaris over here, at least as far as the recollection goes, does sound a lot of fun. 🙂
    Men is interesting, with a few nods to films – like the the Scissor-Hands of Conscience or The Shining. Easly on there’s the feeling of something lightly amateurish about the delivery, but once you accept the sparseness of the sets and…[Read more]

    Used to find using laminated packs rather fun after applying a little talc when they become super slippery.
    Thanks for the update, and yes, fat formans, do tell! 😛
    On TV there’s replay of some old game reviews, the one of SteamWorld Quest: Hand Of Gilgamech was rather glowing compared to the link’s. Have you seen it? It’s a turn based RPG based…[Read more]

  • The evergreen Shruggie, ¯_(ツ)_/¯, and some interesting alternatives:

  • Yes! Get it at Sourceforge! There’s a list of Norton inspired warez at Wikipedia, the “K” in Krusader was an inspired choice for sure!
    Batch is an oldie but a goodie, as is PS and JS, subject is mentioned at vbforums as well, logged in there recently only to find the user account is bricked. 🙁

    Nice. 🙂 Must confess that game has not been sampled…[Read more]

    Congrats on the jars. Do the lids screw in – it’s not easy to tell. Might want a tight fit in case that frogs breath takes over the pantry. 😛
    Confining plasmas magnetically might be the best shot, especially if dealing with dusty plasmas, which can exist at quite cool temperatures.

    Nick Evanson knows all about benchmarks, too, did he once dream…[Read more]

    A LS & 2SB DVD was gifted by a family member for a birthday some time ago, probably ~2012. Replayed it later, in case something was missed. The earlier Lock, Stock and Barrel had nothing much in common other than the name, it does have Claude Akins however, ubiquitous in 50s, 60s and 70s movies and shows.
    Remember seeing bits of Rift awhile back,…[Read more]

  • It does, however can’t see why I ever got the notion the tags should work without enclosing ol, ul or menu tags when it isn’t really a good idea at all. 😛

  • Sometimes a single reply to a thread generates two bubble notifications like:

    Without refreshing the forum root page with the notification, visit the bubble link in a new tab, do something with it, then return to find:

    Pretty nifty if it charges up without a dock, but from the air alone, making it truly “wireless.” 😛
    Yeah, still using the Stupid Factory mousemat, for which the NIP number in the description might suggest the item hails from around 2003, enough to warrant a candidate relic at least. 😛
    Wow, up to ten years of use out of the Ecoflow makes it very…[Read more]

    Have they changed the scaling for Pizza Planet, the only one available here is the original, which, as you know has a rather strong resemblance to the one at Tomorrowland.
    Don’t have the A/C on every day then? Over here on hot summer days, it gets tuned on from around 2pm to 6pm, really does make a difference in the evening.

    It may be able to choose in which direction to send out solar flares or coronal mass ejections.

    The same argument might apply to earth and other planets, where to place those unruly hotspots for best results in achieving mayhem (ahem) peace on earth! 😛
    What kind of dish do you have?

    Have to explore Tubi again.
    Never knew Stephen King tried his hand at directing, bad luck with an Italian crew, should have just stuck with fixing the script though.
    The idea of Mansion of the Doomed could have been extended to animals, a real hoot if the vision was restored with the eyes of a regular barn owl, for instance.
    Yeah, those kinds of…[Read more]

  • Classic takes, forgot all about Agatha Clouseau’s inspired script. 😀
    Right now, streaming Screw, a series based on the comings and goings of staff in a UK prison. In one episode, the head of the wing decides to install an amnesty box for the prisoners to voluntarily relinquish various items of contraband:

    Nothing too hilarious there, until one…[Read more]

    Great, well know we all will know to take backups before upgrades of various flavours – firmware, infirmware, brainrackware. 😛
    The last two apply here as a result of not going to specsavers (not in your country though). Thought the second DP was an HDMI, now wonder it didn’t fit, and the second screen on the TV works of course! 🙂

    It’s got AVR, which doesn’t help, the new downstairs PC works fine on it, will investigate further.
    The old monitors here don’t have DP ports unfortunately, the good news is the Alogic DP => DVI adapter worked, so the VS248h can be used as a fallback monitor. 🙂
    Definitely, watch for dust though if there is no cover, the drive on the old Palsonic…[Read more]

    Gone the whole hog and acquired this viewsonic monitor because it’s HDR10, a thing in Windows now. The 2k res is there if needed, provided it’s not from the UHD770. 😛
    The new Ob rig has an HDMI 2.1 port actually, which renders as absolutely useless with current tech, so the other DP port will have to be converted to HDMI for the TV.
    Madness. 😛
